1 and [2]). Thus, both the catalytic metal type and the temperature influence the gas response [23, 24]. 1(a)]. This occurs at temperatures as low as 150ºC, depending on the molecule and increases with temperature. Experimental results indicate that the polarized layer is indeed located on the insulator surface [22, 25], and this is further supported by results from ion-selective field-effect sensors (ISFETs), where it is + shown that hydrogen introduces SiO−, SiOH, and SiOH2 groups on the SiO2 surface in a liquid environment [26].

The layer made the Schottky diode behave like a tunneling diode, and the ideality factor could be voltage-dependent [73]. An ozone treatment (10 minutes at room temperature) of the HF-etched SiC surface before the metallization step was introduced as a very convenient processing step to produce Schottky diode gas sensors with an increased stability and reproducibility. The use of spectroscopic ellipsometry analysis and also photoelectron spectroscopy using synchrotron radiation showed that an oxide, 1-nm in thickness, was formed by the ozone exposure [74, 75].

Metal oxides can also be used as catalytic layers on devices where the material does not need to conduct large currents. The technology lends itself to batch processing, which considerably reduces the price per chip of the sensors. Furthermore, arrays of sensors with different selectivity patterns can be processed on the same chip, which, together with data evaluation algorithms, enable several components to be identified and monitored in the gas mixtures. Several groups have contributed to the development of SiC sensor devices [1–9].
